The trailer for FINAL DESTINATION 5 just premiered over at Apple and it looks to be more of the same. A group of people cheat death and death comes back around to murder them one by one in ways that would cause the makers of Mouse Trap to be jealous. This time, it's the survivors of a suspension bridge disaster, with the survivors played by scream queen Emma Bell, along with David Koechner (awesome?), Nicholas D'Agosto, Miles Fisher, and Arlen Escarpeta. And of course, the voice of death itself, Mr. Bludworth - that all-knowing mortician who first appeared in 2000's original FINAL DESTINATION, played by horror icon Tony Todd (last seen in this franchise in 2003's FINAL DESTINATION 2).

Honestly, 5 doesn't look all that bad...or at least as horrible as 4 and 3. It does have Steven Quale at the helm, who has been the 2nd Unit Director and Special Projects Coordinator for James Cameron on films like AVATAR, TITANIC, TERMINATOR 2, and THE ABYSS. The script also comes from capable hands - Eric Heisserer, who penned the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake and upcoming THE THING prequel. So, it may be a return to form or even give us our best one yet. Fivequels have been known to do that lately! Guess we'll see when death comes knocking on August 12th, 2011. Check out the trailer after the break, thanks to Trailer Addict.
